Past Time: Her Haiku

Fuck this very zoo
Where captivity drives you
To regret your eyes

*****************

Consecrated Girl
Born for a time such as this
You have been called up

*****************

Equal in this pen
Harken back now to the days
‘fore you suffered snakes

“[F]or if you remain silent at this time…you and your family will perish…who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
– Esther 4:14

Sentient Sacrificed

You, the junk
The addiction
The smack to my very well-being
The contraband to my no-pain-and-suffering-of-sentients policy

I, the chosen one
Queened for just such a time as this
Dignified, decree you
Sacrificed, nonetheless

Original thought credit: “Perhaps you have come to royal dignity for just such a time as this.” -Esther 4:14
